BLDGBLOG's Geoff Manaugh and Nicholas de Monchaux will have a discussion revolving around “whether systems of information and infrastructure can serve those beyond their builders”, based on Nicholas de Monchaux's latest publication, “Local Code: 3,659 Proposals About Data, Design, and the Nature of Cities”. His book presents a series of designs for networked micro-interventions in US cities.

With the impending Trump regime and a growing hostility towards refugees in the UK and Europe overall, the need for an open discussion about displacement and various other symptoms of the global refugee crisis is as urgent as ever before. MoMA's current exhibition Insecurities: Tracing Displacement and Shelter takes a closer look but unfortunately already draws to a close this Sunday. Catch one last related panel tomorrow: On Permanence in Transit presents a conversation between writer Ben Rawlence and curator Sean Anderson. (Event will be live-streamed as well.)
Pipilotti Rist: Open my Glade (Flatten) | Open now until February 1, recommended by Alexander Walter
